How to Party Smart

Take the Party Smart Promise and use it to keep yourself and others safe where ever and when ever you go out!

Arrive together
Stick together
Leave together

Arrive Together – Before You Go Out:

  • Choose a friend or group of friends to go with.
  • Make a plan for where you’re going and who you’re meeting
  • Decide how everyone will get home. Have a backup plan in case of emergency.
  • Choose a code word or signal to let each other know when something isn’t right.
  • Let a trusted person know where you will be.
  • Charge your phone.
  • Download Circle of 6

Stick Together – While You’re There: 

  • Keep an eye on your group. Check in with each other throughout the night to make sure everyone is feeling good and having fun.
  • Always get your own drink and keep an eye on it at all times.
  • Never leave a drink unattended.
  • Be an Active Bystander.

Leave Together – When the Party is Over: 

  • Never leave a member of your group behind. Remember: No “buddy” left behind.
  • Don’t let an intoxicated friend go home with a stranger. If you wouldn’t let your friend drive drunk, don’t let them leave with a stranger drunk.
  • Check in to make sure everyone got home safe. If you can’t reach one of your group members, get help.
  • If someone at the party/bar/club behaved in a way that made you or others feel uncomfortable or unsafe, talk about it. Support others who bring up these issues.
